Should I just get the cheapest one overall (GIGABYTE GV-R797OC-3GD -> 1000MHz//1375MHz)
or cheapest sapphire (SAPPHIRE DUAL FAN 11197-06-40G -> 925MHz/1375MHz)
or a little better product (SAPPHIRE 11197-11-40G)
or maybe an OC version of that beast (SAPPHIRE HD 7970 OC Boost 11197-03-40G -> 950MHz/1425MHz)
OR Vapor-X from GHz Edition (11197-12-40G -> 1000MHz/1500MHz)
and finally maybe something from MSI (MSI R7970 Lightning V278-003R -> 1070MHz/1400MHz) ?
I am really confused about all of these cards. Tell me something about them
If I won't decide, I will just take the Sapphire 7950 OC.
I was also thinking about buying two 7850s or 7870s - it's the same price as for one 7970, but the problem is the future expanding. I can always buy another 7970 for crossfire in 1-2 years.
But from the other side, I have now only half of the money needed for 7970 and it would be great to have 7870 right now, and just buy next one soon.
I'm patient and I will wait for 7970 and I hope it will be a little cheaper for Christmas.
Any more thoughts?
